Blue, Yellow Dream
This piece was an epic undertaking to design, master & finish.
We have included 4 different species and sized fish.
Large Sardine/Mullet length 255mm. Turning Large Sardine/Mullet 270mm Small Sardine/Mullet 217mm
We have coloured these with our airbrushing skills along the top of their bodies using a translucent blue. Darker tones on top then fading down to a lighter blue. Fluorescent white is added under the blue to create the fish markings you see from eye to tail. From the blue line down we have left the bright silver of the stainless on display. This really shows what we can achieve with the grinders in terms of texture and movement. On some fish we have flipped the grinder on its edge to create strips vertically, to mirror looking through the water at them and giving more Jiwa detail to the piece. Once lacquered they develop a really rich, dark, deep clean blue and the stainless becomes soooo shiny and crisp.
Also used are our
Bait Fish or Yellow tail Length 154mm
They are smaller then the Sardines/Mullet and gives a great contrast to the piece. Again Janine has airbrushed the colour patterns, this time using Yellow & Green tones. We both really like adding different fish markings on all the fish we do, so once again the white fluorescent paint has been added first, Naturally in a different pattern to the mullet/sardines to give them their own special character. Coloured across the top of the body with our Jiwa grinding style/skills on their clean silver body’s. We went with a wavey pattern to helping give the overall look of the piece a natural flowing & graceful look.
The different sized fish swim seamlessly together creating an elegantly looking LARGER school/shoal of fish. If you have a large wall then this piece is definitely worth checking out. All cut from 316 Marnie grade stainless. Large chain on the back makes this piece easy to set up on our wall, the way you like to see the school swimming with the ability to tilt it one way or another. Once you have found the desired look, we have a tack point at each end to hold it in position. Looks great as a stand alone school but even better teamed up with some of our single fish. Definitely creates a scene this piece. Dimensions are approximately
L- 2660mm W- 930mm D- 110mm
